tails from ren fair 6

"oh my ghod, this beaver is warm."-lady finding out fur can be used for warmth...

Ah winter time... err wait its suppose to be cool, not freezing out at fair. yet, it was freezing. For as cold as it was, i was shocked to see the amount of people out at fair. lots of people come out. May come out on sunday and seemed to enjoy her self. Another friend made her annual trip out to fair. Beth has shopped at our booth for years now, and has come to be a great friend and customer. She was out for her annual birthday fair day. This time she picked up a buffalo hide. (garment tanned so it makes a great warm bedspread) Joe, Inger, and Sam come out as well. And a few others come out. All was brave to come out in the cold. For those that made it out, i salute you for braving the weather.

now people like to dress up to come out to fair. most people dress according to the weather. Warm means less clothing, a lot of skin showing on some. Cold means cloaks and shirts. So when 4 girls showed up to fair in nothing but very little clothing... well i had one thought in my head. what the hell was you thinking. The one that seemed to be coldest was wearing a short bodice with a sports bra, a small pair of bike shorts and 2 and a half bunnies. oh and a pair of socks (which they bought most likely out at fair) no shoes. This was basically what they all wore. the one got a sheep skin to warm her self with. There was others that was out there in bad clothing choices. Flip flops is not the ideal foot wear. neither was not wearing a shirt, and then going in to play barbarian wars. When you sweat and then cool down, well it really makes you cool down.

I was shocked that the weather had not taken and stopped all the people from buying. I got to sell the coolest ram skull in our collection on the sales wall. (it was out of the bosses collection, they got a slightly bigger one) Sold almost all of the sheep skins and sold all the hair on deer hides. sold a lot of the hood wraps that people use as tails, for warmth for women in bodices. A lot of people was just needing to get warm. i almost wanted to take down the buffalo on the wall to use at night because it was so cold at time, and i had many layers of clothing. Skulls don't sell well during the cold, but they sold as well. This was a good thing. of course this was on the week end, monday was a different thought. Monday we sold... hardly any thing.

A charity auction/cast party was held on sunday night. I went for five minutes and left. most of the rest of the booth staid a little bit. While i know a lot of people the area they crammed people in to was small and i do not like being forced in to a small area with no way out but through a gauntlet of people. but a lot of people said it was fun. For me i went to the booth and got a beer, then helped set up the grill for food. Grilled Ham and pineapple.... oh it was good.

This week we had a great conversation happen in front of our booth that gave me ideas. 2 of the royal princes was looking at stuff to keep warm. After shopping they took and started looking at the cases. in one of the cases we have skull beads. the one looks at the other and the following conversation was had....
Prince 1- "look little skulls"
Prince 2- "why those must be dead fairies."
P1-"Yes they definitely must be pixie heads."
P2-"they can only be seen in death."

It got me to thinking what a wonderful name for a music group, and the first cd title. i will be working on a fake cd cover for the band "Pixie Heads". the name of the cd "Seen only in death""oh my ghod, this beaver is warm."-lady finding out fur can be used for warmth...
